What’s for Dinner?

What’s for dinner?

I’m not the best cook, there, I said it.

It’s not actually a secret, my kids have told me that I’m forever trying to kill them with fish and vegetables. I try to cook healthy foods, but it’s not always been edible ;). However, my cooking is getting better (my kids even request fish now). One reason is that I’ve tapped into some great recipes. Here’s one from my friends at Paleohacks. I love the recipes HERE because they’re healthy and DOABLE even for a horrible cook like me.

Look, I can go to a recipe and (almost) make something yummy every time, but it may be made with crappy/unhealthy ingredients; the trick is making food that tastes good AND is good for you. The recipes HERE have really helped me.

You’ve probably heard all about ‘paleo’ eating. You may have even tried it. No other diet or eating plan provides so many benefits so fast:

– Increased Energy
– Clearer Skin
– Lean, Muscular Body
– Enhanced Libido
– Greater Mental Clarity
– All Day Stamina
– Better Workouts
– And more

The list goes on and on. Talk to anyone who’s actually eaten Paleo for even a full month and chances are, they’ll rave about the changes they  started seeing in their body.

The trouble with this style of eating is that it gets boring and hard to stick to.

If you’re interested in discovering the benefits of the paleo lifestyle but you’re intimidated that all you’ll eat is boring meals of meat and veggies, you’re mistaken. Take a look at what you can ‘indulge’ in HERE and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Okay, here’s a nice recipe, enjoy:

Baked Salmon & Pistachio Salsa

Fish4 salmon fillets2 tablespoons olive oil

1 bunch dill

1 fresh orange, juiced

½ teaspoon salt




4 cups pumpkin, chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil

Salsa1 bunch flat leaf parsley finely chopped1 tablespoon small capers

½ cup pistachio kernels

¼ cup shallots, finely sliced

1 tablespoon olive oil



Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180 Celsius/350 Fahrenheit.

Rinse the salmon under cold running water and pat dry with a paper towel. Rub sea salt onto the fish. Wrap fish in aluminium foil with sprigs of dill, orange juice and olive oil. Fold edges of aluminum foil to form a tight package.

Bake fish in oven for 20-30 minutes or until cooked through.

In an ovenproof dish, combine pumpkin and olive oil and bake in the oven at the same time as the fish. Cook for 20-30 minutes or until soft and golden.

To make the salsa, combine parsley, capers, pistachios, shallots and olive oil and mix well.

Serve fish with the salsa.
